Allthe good from the Savior of theworld is communicated to usthrough this book."-- President Abraham Lincoln"For we must consider that we shallbe as a City upon a hill. The eyes ofall people are upon us. So that if weshall deal falsely with our God in thiswork we have undertaken, and socause Him to withdraw his presenthelp from us, we shall be made astory and a byword throughout theworld." --John Winthrop, Governorof the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630"It is impossible to rightly govern theworld without God and the Bible."- President George Washington"The Bible is no mere book, but a LivingCreature, with a power that conquersall that oppose it." - Napoleon"That Book accounts for the supremacyof England." - Queen Victoria"If there is anything in my thought orstyle to commend, the credit is due myparents for instilling in me an earlylove of the Scriptures. If we abide bythe principals taught in the Bible, ourcountry will go on prospering and toprosper; but if we and our posterityneglect its instructions and authority,no man can tell how sudden acatastrophe may overwhelm us andbury all our glory in profound obscurity."- Daniel Webster (Founding Father)"The Bible is worth all other books whichhave ever been printed." - Patrick Henry(original member of the Continental Congress)"The Bible is the anchor of our liberties."- President U.S. Grant"It is impossible to enslave mentally or sociallya Bible-reading people. The principals of theBible are the groundwork of human freedom."- Horace Greeley (Editor)"That Book is the rock on which our Republicrests." - President Andrew Jackson"In all my perplexities and distresses, the Biblehas never failed to give me light and strength."- Gen. Robert E. Lee"Bible reading is an education in itself."- Lord Tennyson (Poet)"So great is my veneration for the Bible that theearlier my children begin to read it the moreconfident will be my hope that they will proveuseful citizens of their country and respectablemembers of society. I have for many years madeit a practice to read through the Bible onceevery year." - President John Quincy Adams"The existence of the Bible, as a Book for thepeople, is the greatest benefit which the humanrace has ever experienced. Every attempt tobelittle it is a crime against humanity."- Immanuel Kant (Philosopher)"The New Testament is the very best Book thatever or ever will be known in the world."- Charles Dickens (Author)"All human discoveries seem to be made onlyfor the purpose of confirming more and morestrongly the truths contained in the SacredScriptures." - Sir William Herschel (Astronomer)"There are more sure marks of authenticityin the Bible than in any profane history."- Sir Isaac Newton (Scientist)"Let mental culture go on advancing,let the natural sciences progress ineven greater extent and depth, andthe human mind widen itself as muchas it desires; beyond the elevationand moral culture of Christianity, asit shines forth in the Gospels, it willnot go." - Goethe (Author)"I have known ninety-five of the world'sgreat men in my time, and of these eight-seven were followers of the Bible. TheBible is stamped with a Specialty of Origin,and an immeasurable distance separatesit from all competitors."- W.E. Gladstone (Prime Minister)"Whatever merit there is in anything thatI have written is simply due to the fact thatwhen I was a child my mother daily readme a part of the Bible and daily made melearn a part of it by heart." - John Ruskin(art critic and social commentator)"The Bible has been the Magna Charta of thepoor and oppressed. The human race is notin a position to dispense with it." - ThomasHuxley (Author & Scientist)"The whole hope of human progress issuspended on the ever growing influenceof the Bible." - W.H. Seward (Secretary of State)"America was born a Christian nation. Americawas born to exemplify that devotion to theelements of righteousness, which are derivedfrom the revelations of Holy Scriptures. Partof the destiny of Americans lies in their dailyperusal of this great book of revelations.That if they would see America free andpure they will make their own spirits freeand pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit."--President Woodrow WilsonFor Christians, the life and death of Jesusare the ultimate expressions of love, andthe supreme demonstrations of God'smercy, faithfulness, and redemption.Since Christ's miraculous Resurrectionon Easter, more than 2,000 years ago,Christians have expressed joy andgratitude for this wondrous sacrificeand for God's promise of freedom forthe oppressed, healing for the broken -hearted, and salvation. --PresidentGeorge W. Bush"It cannot be emphasized too stronglyor too often that this great nation wasfounded, not by religionists, but byChristians; not on religions, but onthe gospel of Jesus Christ. For thisvery reason peoples of other faithshave been afforded asylum, prosperity,and freedom of worship here."--Patrick Henry (original memberof the Continental Congress)God designed humans to want tobelieve in something. That's theimage of God that is in us. But asG. K. Chesterton famously put it,when we reject the God of theBible, we don't believe in nothing;we believe in everything -- includingLittle Green Men. - - Chuck ColsonI am trying here to prevent anyone fromsaying the really foolish thing that peopleoften say about Jesus Christ: "I'm readyto accept Jesus as a great moral teacher,but I don't accept His claim to be God."That is the one thing we must not say.A man who was merely a man and saidthe sort of things Jesus said would not bea great moral teacher. He would either bea lunatic -- on a level with a man who sayshe is a poached egg -- or else he would bethe Devil of Hell.You must make your choice. Either this Manwas, and is, the Son of God, or else a madmanor something worse .... You can shut Him upfor fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as ademon; or you can fall at His feet and call HimLord and God. But let us not come up with anypatronizing nonsense about His being a greathuman teacher. He has not left that optionopen to us. He did not intend to. -- FromCase for Christianity, by C.S. Lewis"Let every student be plainly instructed andearnestly pressed to consider well the mainend of his life and studies is to know Godand Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John17:3)." - - - The Laws and Statutes ofHarvard College in 1643"All scholars shall live religious, godly,and blameless lives according to the rulesof God's Word, diligently reading the HolyScriptures, the fountain of light and truth;and constantly attend upon all the dutiesof religion, both in public and secret."- - - Two central requirements in YaleCollege 1745 charterIf you stop believing what your professortold you had to be true and if you startthinking for yourself you may come to someconclusions you hadn't expected. You mayfind the Bible makes more sense than youthought or were told to think. Allow yourselfto be ruined, ruined with regard to what youalways thought could be true. Can you believewhat you don't understand? You and I believeeveryday what we don't understand unless itcomes to the issue of salvation.- - - Dr. Woodrow KrollThere is simply no historic foundation for theposition that the Framers intended to build the'wall of separation' that was constitutionalizedin Everson. The 'wall of separation betweenchurch and state' is a metaphor based on badhistory, a metaphor which has proved uselessas a guide to judging. It should be frankly andexplicitly abandoned. - - - Chief Justice ofthe US Supreme Court, William RehnquistIn 1796 the US Supreme Court issued thisruling, "By our form of government, theChristian religion is the established religion,and all sects and denominations of Christiansare placed on equal footing." Some 57 yearslater, after Congress was petitioned to separateChristian principles from government, in 1853the House Judiciary Committee issued theirformal report, including these words: "In thisage there is no substitute for Christianity.This was the religion of the founders of therepublic, and they expected it to be thereligion of their dependents. The great vital,conservative elements in our system is thebelief of our people in the pure doctrinesand divine truths of the gospel of JesusChrist." - - - Dr. Gerald Beavan"It is the duty of nations, as well as of men,to own their dependence upon the overrulingpower of God and to recognize the sublimetruth announced in the Holy Scriptures andproven by all history, that those nations onlyare blessed whose God is the Lord."-- President Abraham LincolnTrust in yourself and you are doomed todisappointment; trust in money and youmay have it taken from you; but trust inGod, and you are never to be confoundedin time or eternity. - D.L. MoodyFaith and love are apt to be spasmodicin the best of minds. Men and women liveon the brink of mysteries and harmoniesinto which they never enter and with theirhand on the door latch they die outside.- - GK ChestertonBest wishes for continued ascendancy,Dr. WhoamiP.S.
